The parents of missing British girl Madeleine McCann have held talks with a US entertainment company regarding making a film about their daughter's disappearance, their family spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, said Tuesday.
He said that he and another family representative had met with entertainment company IMG Media last month.
"If we feel any particular proposal in the media has validity in helping us find Madeleine, we are happy to discuss it," Mitchell said.
Madeleine McCann disappeared from a Portuguese resort on May 3. Despite a global campaign by her parents, the girl has not been found and no one has been charged over her disappearance.
